It’s time to say, “Enough!” NO MORE EXCUSES.
It’s YOUR FAULT!
Now that we finally admit it, let’s regain responsibility.
Where are you less than your best? Write them down.
Relationship with family
Relationship with team
Relationship with neighbors
Peace of mind
Now write down why on those you picked above.
Write down all of the reasons.
Every single one.
Now cross out the “reasons” you gave for why and simply put: Because I failed.
Now, what are you going to do to change it, starting now?
No buts, whining, blame or complaining.
No. More. EXCUSES.
I’m going to change my failure in 2017 to success in the areas of health and fitness. I will and have to be more determined in perusing my need to exercise. Improving on my career and earning more income.
It has been quite a while since I posted something on photography over at this blog. I had the opportunity to view many many different flowers last month while on holiday in Taiwan. Here are some shots I took while playing with the focus of the camera.
Droplets of water on the flower petals really add “character” to a shot. It shows that the flower looks really “fresh” after having had a drink.
I tried to line up the two tulips for this shot. Focusing on the one in the foreground and blurring out the one behind.
What do you think of this effect?
This shot was taken from the same position the one above but I was focusing on the bi-colored tulips instead of the light pink ones in the foreground. It is interesting to see how the texture of the shot changes once the focus shifts.
I prefer the shot above as compared to this one as this one doesn’t seem to be cropped as nicely. The background seems to be a bit too “messy” also. What do you think?
Any suggestions on how to improve capturing tulips?
I have always love taking pictures of flowers. It is one of my favourite subject. I love how the light bounces off the petals of the flower and make it look so “alive”. I didn’t manage to go to the Botanic garden or view any flower exhibitions during my last trip aboard. I did manage to view and capture some blooms when we visited the Hong Kong Wetland Park. It was the only place where I could get up and close with nature.
I spotted these light purple bloom among a bush during our walk around the park. The color really captured my attention and I stopped to take a closer look and to snap some pictures.
I didn’t have my regular DSLR with me as I only brought a point and shoot. As a result, I couldn’t really take the type of close up shot which I really wanted to. I had to be more creative in the type of shots I took with the camera. Out of all the flower shots I felt that this third picture was the most captivating one that I took of that purple flower.
